All of the packaging products we offer come with quantity based discounts. Some of the best quantity based discounts we offer can be found in our heat shrink wrap and stretch film products. A big reason discounts are large for these products is because of the weight and shipping cost related with these products.
Sure, we come down on price per case or roll the more you order, but freight costs is where the savings are. Below are a couple of recent orders we have had and how shipping was a large factor in the customers savings.
A recent order that shipped out called our sales department for a fright quote on 10 polyolefin rolls of heat shrink wrap. A 24 inch 75 gauge shrink wrap roll sells for $209.61 per roll on single rolls orders. The quote for 10 polyolefin rolls is below.
(10) Polyolefin Heat Shrink Rolls 24″ x 75 Ga.= $192 per roll + S & H $135 = $2055 total or $205.50 per roll delivered
A member of our sales team determined through the conversation that the customer was going through enough film to order 20 rolls if they could save more money. Below is the quote for 20 polyolefin rolls.
(20) Polyolefin Heat Shrink Rolls 24″ x 75 Ga.= $183 per roll + S & H $147= $3807 total or $190.35 per roll delivered
The difference in shipping cost was twelve dollars for double the amount of product. There was over a $15 per roll difference in the final price.
The customer went through plenty of the shrink film and had the storage space so they decided to order 20 rolls instead of order what they originally wanted quoted.
Even greater quantity discounts can often be found with stretch film. Because stretch film costs less per case or roll, the shipping costs have a greater effect on the delivered price. This is especially true in orders under 20 cases or 20 machine rolls. A recent customer call for a 5 roll quote on 20″x80 ga.x5000 ft. machine stretch film rolls. Our single roll website price is $59.20. Below is the quote.
(5) 20″x80 ga.x5000 ft. machine stretch film rolls= $57 per roll + S & H $76= $361 or $72.20 per roll delivered
Once again, our sales rep. determined through the conversation that the customer uses enough film to order more if it will save enough money. Below is the following two quotes that were given.
(10) 20″x80 ga.x5000 ft. machine stretch film rolls= $56 per roll + S & H $85= $645 or $64.50 per roll delivered
(20) 20″x80 ga.x5000 ft. machine stretch film rolls= $54.5 per roll +S & H $93= $1183 or $59.15 per roll delivered
The difference of the original 5 roll quote to the 20 roll quote is over $13 per roll. That is a much higher percentage of discount than the polyolefin example above.
One more thing to consider is we pay freight on all full pallet stretch film orders. That equals very large savings when you factor in the per case discount as well.
For any shrink wrap order stretch film order over 5 cases or rolls, we offer quantity quotes. Call our sales department at 1-800-441-5090 to request a quote.
